I was canvassing in my constituency yesterday for the European elections. I knocked on a farm door and introduced myself. The farmer said he was very pleased to meet me as he had a problem with the EU.
What is your problem I promptly asked.
‘Well.’ he said, ‘I have this bull and for a long time it was just not doing the job. So I looked around and I found this feed supplement that was supposed to help.’
‘Well it did work wonderfully well and soon my whole herd was covered. But now I hear the EU is going to ban this product and I fear my bull will go back to being useless. What is the name of the product I asked so I could check this out for him.’
‘I cannot recall,’ said the farmer, ‘but it tastes like aniseed.’
